Their jobs don’t end when class is over. They also make sure the children prep for important occasions. Recently, Atticus’ Primary 2 class had their first penitential service, and soon Rex’s Primary 3s will be having their first Holy Communion.
“We organised a Family Reconciliation session for the Primary 2 children on August 24. It was a touching moment, seeing that it was a full attendance; and that families were all together. It was also a great feeling when the children came up to me to say, ‘Hello teacher’!” expressed Atticus.
They’ve enjoyed their time in the ministry so much that both Rex and Atticus are considering staying on after their L9 attachment.
“I really feel that catechists bring great value to the faith development of a child.” – Rex
